    Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    WOW! Is scrappy? Man, you're like classic example of exactly what I am talking about. Prob a huge jerk in real life who picks on the new ones. All of these responses are ***. I am talking about yelling and insulting. THIS ISN'T ABOUT MY WEAKNESSES. BULLYING IS BULLYING. WOW!. Man I would not want to hang out with any of you in real life.

    Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    I didn't say everywhere I go. I have had multiple jobs before starting nursing. It has started in nursing. Is every nursing professor or nurse I've ever met a bully? No, but I have come across several unlike in any other field. The common denominator is not me, the common denominator is that research verifies there is a lot of bullying in the healthcare field. I hope you aren't blaming yourself for any bullying. You're not thinking straight. It came out wrong. I meant to write many nurses or something and then I didn't feel like editing it. Gosh, you're a nurse, stop being so sensitive! (Joking, poking fun at nurse bullying)

    I mean, I do get advice on how to do deal with bullies. It's a chronic issue because there is something wrong with nurses. I hope you are not suggesting that there is a problem with my interpersonal skills. The attacks I have had reflect more on those people...

    Why exactly would a counselor help? They can't change what's happening.
  5. Hi, I would appreciate some advice on this. I started a RN-NP Program with the goal of becoming an NP. I am taking a break now working as an RN having completed the first part of the program. I have experienced a lot of bullying in nursing school and working as a nurse. It is wearing me down. I know longer know if I want to be an NP because it seems there are some toxic issues in healthcare, plus the workload. I do have 160,000 in debt with my undergrad and nursing school combined. Part of me wants to finish and do NP just so I can make more of an income and hopefully pay off my debt faster. And do what I always thought I wanted to do, before realizing how toxic healthcare can me. But part of me wants to go into another field, one that is more creative, and I won't likely encounter these issues as much. I have worked in other fields and did not experience any bulling, and have done research and found that it is more prevalent in healthcare. Thanks.
  6. Hi all, I need some advice on whether I should continuing my schooling to become a nurse practitioner or not. Since nursing school, continuing through working as a nurse, I have had to deal with frequent bullies. It causes me stress, wears me down, and makes me not want to go to work. I have so many responsibilities too. This all makes me not even be interested in being a nurse anymore. I already have chronic autoimmune and pain issues, and the stress of nursing and the toxic environment is becoming too much for me. I am unsure if I should become a nurse practitioner in the hopes that the environments will be less toxic and less stressful, or go into another field. I think about medical illustration. I just can't do this anymore. I'd appreciate your two cents.
  7. Seems like it could involve autoimmunity, between her ANA results, and her subclinical hypothyroidism.
  8. Thyroid panel. Infectious disease panel-lyme disease and possible coexisting infections such as babesia and bartonella. Vitamin D levels. B vitamin and folate levels Iron levels. Electrolye levels. Ask her about her diet.

    BSN or MSN without RN in Oregon?

    Hi, I just got my RN diploma from an RN-to-NP direct entry program. To make a long story short, I decided that I no longer want to be a provider as an NP, and to pursue my longtime dream of being a medical illustrator. For the next few years I will work and save up to pay for medical illustration school. My question is, within the next about 12 months I can either get a BSN from any online program, or get my MSN from the same school online that I went to in person last year (good reputation) that is a nurse generalist MSN-ie not an NP. Which is the best option for making a high income quickly? If it makes a difference, I live in Oregon. Thanks, I appreciate your thoughts.

    Boston College Direct Entry MSN 2019

    Hi, I'm a current student. The Connell school of nursing is accredited by the CCNE. Where I am reading that it does not specifically say DNP, but it says the entire Connell school of nursing so it probably includes the new DNP program. I would call them though for clarification. We are matched with preceptors who are well-qualified. We are not supposed to find are own.

    Simmons Direct Entry 2019

    And yes, you can get undergraduate loans for the RN part, but not the master's part. That shouldn't stop you. You can get the graduate plus loans, and theres also scholarships you can apply for

    Simmons Direct Entry 2019

    Yeah, Simmons has a very good nursing reputation. The regular programs, not online necessarily. I would have chosen the direct entry at Simmons, but chose Boston College instead for various reasons (including I want to work with adults and they only offer FNP). Also Simmons direct entry FNP program has the possibility to do a dual degree in public health with Harvard which is really cool, but you have to apply once you're in the FNP program.

    Northeastern Direct Entry 2019

    I got this same email! I'm not sure if they got much more applicants than any of the other schools, because MGH, Simmons, and BC were not this slow in getting back to me. But I doubt it...

    Boston College Direct Entry MSN 2019

    FYI I got a 159 on verbal and 154 on quantitative. Most schools generally want above 50th percentile which mine was, although not dramatically above. Actually they approved me w/o unoffical scores for this test yet, only my first lower scores And they really do consider all aspects of the application, I think recommendation letters and personal statement are super important. Good luck

    Boston College Direct Entry MSN 2019

    Personally I chose Boston College not just because its faster, but also because I loved the campus and atmosphere more than any other school I visited and they have an outstanding reputation for nursing (NEU does have a good reputation as well though). It definitely does appeal that its shorter though. I am planning to do the DNP in my third year. It does not bother me a whole lot that I won't have a BSN as my end goal is DNP, but I do see the value in that.
